Re: UC elitist fans...

I've had the privileged of dealing with this type of fans in the Star Wars, Gundam and Castlevania fandom, which like you guys have spoken above, all have this common thing of the person thought to be the "creator" of that franchise only has pretty limited creative involvement with that franchise fr...

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

Anyone here have watched Gonzo shows back in the early 2000s? They have got Gravion, and to a lesser extend, Burst Angels and Samurai 7. I always like Gonzo for their "trashiness"--they put so much effort in the animations, but a lot of times their stories and characters stuck in the 1980s and 90s O...

Okay, so any thought on this news: https://twitter.com/kusaikaze11/status/1358012509450473472 A Frontier short movie in the 2020s?... Okay, are we bringing back every big mecha show in the mid-2000s?

Dom and urban combat in UC

Could anyone remember any instance of Dom-type mobile suits engaging in urban combat? I wonder not only how would the machines would manuever inside a city with their bulky size, but also how the city landscape affect the hoverjets? And speaking of which, how do you think urban infantry combat usual...

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

I on the other hand like the mecha designs of Franxx quite a lot, perhaps because of my familiarity with Star Driver, whose mecha were designed by the same guy and I was always a fan of. The new show from Goro Taniguchi, Back Arrow has some mecha designs that remind me a lot of Franxx and Star Driv...

Re: Forgotten mecha shows?

Anyone here have watched the two mecha spin-offs of Tenchi Muyo: War in Geminar and Dual! Parallel Lun-Lun Monogatari? From what little I have watched of Tenchi Muyo, it feels pretty boring and generic to me. Should I spend my time for these two spin-offs? Also, here is the news about a crowdfunding...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Okay, so we can all agree that Delta is not a failure, right? But then how should we response to people saying in that case, what can stop Satelight to do it again with the next entry? If they can get away with recycling a lot of stuffs from Frontier once, then what stop them to do it the second tim...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

When you think about it, Macross 7 was a pretty radical departure from what had come before... Macross II: Lovers Again followed Do You Remember Love? 's plot beats and themes pretty closely, while Macross Plus was The Un- Macross , having very few Macross tropes and themes apart from the crowbarre...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

It's kind of weird to think that Macross 7 was that big of a change in tone. I mean, it wasn't as much as when you finished Victory and moved to G. 7 felt like a natural evolution of the metaplotline from the original. Or maybe it was because Plus came out before 7 and was an instant favorite for al...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

So, let's just say after this movie came out, everything related to Delta including Walkure is wrapped up. Then when can we expect the next installment of the franchise? Delta is released four years after the second Frontier movie, and Frontier itself was released four years after the last episode o...

After it came out, Nagano changed every details in the FSS universe, from the lores to the designs, to f...

But the truth is, it is not that good, hate to say, actually pretty bad. The storyboard and scene cuts are barely coherent, the overall plot is almost non-existent, it makes sense that it was forgotten. Actually not, https://twitter.com/Kai_Seven_/status/1266568429324038144 The related web novel go...

Re: Shoji Kawamori's original GP03 proposal

So, we've got another case of Kawamori recycling an old designs, but now it's not a VF.

It makes me wonder does he do the same thing with non-Macross shows? Like, is there anything from Aquarion, M3 or Jushinki Pandora that we have seen before?

Re: Could anyone make money from cleaning up man-made space debris?

The most viable option might be a laser array doing so automatically, in space or on the Ground, but both methods have their own difficulties. Ablate some material on the debris to act as propellant, and the force will nudge it a bit and hasten up its de-orbiting. Could you maybe elaborate about th...

Could anyone make money from cleaning up man-made space debris?

It's a given that even a smallest piece of debris in space could cause disastrous damage if impact at high speed. So, in any scenario which space travel in and out of Earth become common place, would there be any organizations or entities taking up the job of cleaning up these debris? And would that...
